NFL: Super Bowl LI-New England Patriots vs Atlanta Falcons Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Despite how you might feel about the New England Patriots, and for whatever reason you might feel that way, it’s hard not to be happy for former Razorback Trey Flowers.

In Flowers’ second season in the NFL, he became a key player for the Patriots, leading the team with 7 sacks in the regular season, not including the 2.5 sacks he had in the Super Bowl. The last one was one of the biggest plays of the game, as it helped push Atlanta out of field goal range when an extra three points likely would have won the game.

Flowers was a leader during Bret Bielema’s first two seasons at Arkansas. He’s one of the players who was on campus during the Petrino fiasco, came back to Fayetteville for his senior season in 2014 when he didn’t have to and Arkansas was in the midst of a 17-game SEC losing streak, and was an emotional leader as a senior when the Hogs finally snapped that streak with wins over LSU and Ole Miss. He’s a great story.

He also wore a Razorback mouthpiece throughout the game
